DHEA is a key building block for sex hormones. It helps support the immune system, energy, mood, and overall health. It's important for feeling energetic and well.

It is a vital hormone produced mainly in the adrenal glands, with additional synthesis occurring in the gonads and brain, from hormonal balance to brain health.
